In this machine, the plasma is separated, along with the platelet concentrate, from the remaining blood components (red and white blood cells). Once the plasma is received, it is placed in a syringe and applied to the scalp. For this, small, thin and short needles are being used. Plasma is administered to the Patient exactly as it is during mesotherapy. Thanks to this, patients do not have to worry about the occurrence of extensive inflammation and redness.
